Hollow upper eyelid space
Adding volume to the area is the answer, but I understand your concern about the very small risk of intra-arterial penetration causing blindness - which can happen no matter the material placed, fat or hyaluronic acid filler.
We try to mitigate this in 3 ways.
1. Blunt cannula technique - nothing sharp, so it injected material simply pushed into avascular space.
2. Injecting against the bone where there is a rather vascular space.
3. Injecting incredibly small aliquots to any one area at a time. This is very technique driven and you want to make sure whoever is doing this is skilled and experienced. Filling of the peri orbital area should be thought of as spray painting rather than caulking.
Finally, in the event that something untoward should happen, make sure that the facility you go to is equipped with reversal agents and has ophthalmology colleagues nearby.
Best of luck to you!
